The hills had been alive with the magic of Disney.
Adventures by Disney’s devoted Journey Guides made the magic occur, main dozens of river cruise company in a twirl-and-jump photo-op on an Austrian mountain meadow — an emulation of the well-known opening scene within the musical movie “The Sound of Music.”
The second day of our Danube cruise began in Passau, Germany, then we crossed into Austria for a spirited trek via the Tree Path Kopfing, a tree-top path, which culminated in a big playground subsequent to an eatery serving hearty Bavarian fare.
A part of Adventures by Disney’s mannequin is that Journey Guides draw back youngsters for their very own actions on choose excursions, giving mother and father a break. And so, the kids romped in an journey playground (trampolines, rope programs, ziplines) that regarded prefer it sprouted naturally out of the forest flooring. In the meantime, the adults socialized and cooled off with radlers (a beer-lemonade cocktail).
Now, today may have already got been greater than full with the forest park and the charming Passau strolling tour previous it, however there at all times appears to be that little further one thing supplied by Adventures by Disney.

Earlier than a return to the AmaLea, docked again throughout the border in Germany, Journey Information Michaela introduced on the motorcoach that we’d be stopping once more in 5 minutes or so.
We pulled as much as a stunningly inexperienced meadow with deep grass (my son noticed crickets) and clambered out. Within the distance loomed the Austrian Alps, and the scene was a useless ringer for the opening pictures of Maria in “The Sound of Music.” I am unsure if it was impromptu, nevertheless it actually felt prefer it. One in all our Journey Guides later instructed me the cease was solely made potential after our motorcoaches had been allowed to park nearer to the tip of our stroll.
The Journey Guides led company on a twirl and singalong, after which many youngsters and the kids-at-heart mother and father posed for pictures and movies and ran round. It was a long-lasting reminiscence cast through a beloved movie and made potential by our outgoing Journey Guides.
